A teacher or schoolteacher is a person who provides education for pupils (children) and students (adults). In many countries, a person who wishes to become a teacher must first obtain specified professional qualifications or credentials from a university or college. Education in its broadest, general sense is the means through which the aims and habits of a group of people lives on from one generation to the next. (With material from: Wikipedia)
